In other news, you may have noticed weird things going on with the blog.  Jacob hit a few buttons when I left my computer on the coffee table recently which cleared all of the settings so I started playing around with the idea of changing up our look.  It is (obviously) a work in progress and if you couldn’t tell, I have no idea what I am doing. 🙂

I managed to take both Jacob and Lilian to the pediatrician yesterday for their 2 year and 1 month appointments respectively, and to my surprise, things went really well.  I have to thank my incredibly smart husband for suggesting I take the iPad for Jacob to play with.  It kept him occupied and still while we waited and helped take his mind off the fact that he was about to get weighed and measured – something he REALLY doesn’t enjoy.

Their doctor said that both of them look fantastic and are growing and developing as they should.  Jacob weighed in at 28lbs 13ozs and measured 36″ tall and Lilian was 9lbs, 6ozs and 22.5″ tall.  Strangely enough, both of them are in the 75th percentile for height and the 50th for weight.  Looks like we have very consistent children!

Havana Jacob

We had some interesting weather this week. It was 85 degrees on Monday, 75 on Tuesday and 65 on Wednesday and Thursday.

I took these pictures on Monday during our heatwave, when Jacob decided that the lawn (and the driveway, and the walkway) could use a little attention from Mow Mow, his favorite toy.

He does make a pretty cute little lawn boy. 🙂

Jacob was stalking Bailey on Friday afternoon while waiting for Keith to get home from work when he lost his balance.  He then watched the video repeatedly, laughing hysterically every time. In case you can’t hear, he is singing “Let’s Get Goggie”.

We were so glad to have Nana visit this week when she came to meet her 12th grandchild and 4th granddaughter!  In addition to spending lots of time with Jacob and Lilian (and me!), she was a tremendous help around the house.

One Month!

It’s hard to believe that an entire month has passed since this sweet baby joined our family.

In some ways it feels like just a few short days,

but it is also hard to remember our lives before she came along.

She has brought us so much joy in such a short time.

Lilian Clare is a very content baby, loves to eat, is growing well and sleeps like a champion.

Most notably, she has won over her big brother – Jacob is quite infatuated with her and loves to give Lilian hugs and kisses.

She has just started smiling and is trying so hard to hold her head up.

What a difference a month makes!
